Do Not Crush List of Meds

ISMP has removed the Do Not Crush list of medications from their website. We have a link to this list in our EMR for nurses/pharmacists to check if the medication can be crushed.

Trying to figure out how to handle this moving forward.

Does your facility have and maintain a do not crush list of medications? If so, how does this procedure work? Only for formulary medications? All medications?

Thank you in advance for all of your help!
